    what I dislike about this situation isnt the 10 month wait, but being told the knives will be ready next month like 5 times. i also have one on "reserve".

    Its not keiichi's fault (BlueWay). i'm sure you know that. Just like Jon and maxim, I'm sure they've run into supply chain issues. He said that some company made a huge Yusuke purchase. I think it was probably those knives that you pointed out in a propr post labor. Keiichi agrees with your assessment to labor, that these blades did come from the same shop that makes Yusukes.

    Did he mention how many (if any) 270s there would be? I'd love one but I don't want to keep waiting with no definite ETA

    thick flat 270 ss sure would be attractive option if it were actually available...

    Steven I'm surprised you're interested in these knives, I thought you didn't like your KS. Or was it just the not so great edge retention you didn't like? FYI, masamoto makes a KS in aeb-l for not too much more than these yusukes...I'm thinking bout getting one of those instead

    Yeah I didn't like it but I didn't like the flatness of it and a 270 sort of takes this out of the equation. I also didn't like the edge retention, but again it would hopefully be better with these ones. I didn't know about the AEB-L KS. Where did you hear of them?
